The Voice reveals top 3 finalists - including Ann Arbor favorite Michelle Chamuel
Tyler Golden | NBC
The former Ann Arbor resident turned in another strong performance on Monday's episode of "The Voice," NBC's singing competition show. And fan voting after that show has now sent her into next week's finale as one of three finalists.
Tuesday's results show started with Chamuel joining Fall Out Boy for a live performance.
In a chat with the show's celebrity coaches, host Carson Daly asked Chamuel's coach, Usher, about her future. "I think it's very promising," Usher responded. "I feel like she is medicine for our country, for our world."
A short time later, Daly announced that Chamuel was the first of the five semifinalists to become one of the three finalists. Fan voting, by phone and online, determines who moves on in each round of the competition.
In a brief interview after the announcement, Chamuel praised the other singers and thanked the voters. "I'm still in shock. This is crazy," she said.
Chamuel now lives in the Boston area, but she is a University of Michigan graduate who became well known to local music fans as the lead singer for the Ann Arbor band Ella Riot / My Dear Disco.
Later in the show, Danielle Bradberry from Blake Shelton's team became the second finalist, followed by the Swon Brothers, also from Shelton's team. That left Sasha Allen and Amber Carrington as the latest eliminations.
"The Voice" airs at 8 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
